political sociology and salad

I had lunch with a Marxist today. A Karl Marxist. I confess, I wasn’t expecting a lengthy conversation on Karl’s economic theories, and I certainly had little to contribute.  Aside from the ocassional nod and “u-huh”, I mostly munched on salad greens. 

 I left with a commitment to read more about Karl and his theories. Apparently he is misrepresented. Das Capital will now displace Mockingjay on my beach reading list.
